Notes & Reviews:

Born in Wiesenberg, Czechoslavakia to a non-musical family, Alfred Brendel has grown into one of Austria's most renowned pianists. Known as one of the most thoughtful interpreters of classical Germanic works, he performs his favorite Piano Sonatas by Beethoven. Believing that the primary job of the pianist is to respect the composer's wishes without showing himself off Brendel says, "I am responsible to the composer." His first recording of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas, this album is a landmark of youth exuberance, full of vigor, virtuosity and spontaneity
